13 July 2015

Trade between Angola and Brazil totalled US$2.371 billion in 2014, the Brazilian Agency for Export and Investment Promotion (Apex-Brazil) said Friday in a statement.

Apex-Brazil also said that last year Brazilian exports to Angola reached US$1.261 million and imports of Angolan products totalled US$1.109 billion, giving Brazil a trade surplus of US$152 million.

The statement said a Brazilian delegation of 40 entrepreneurs would take part in the Luanda International Fair (Filda) from 20 to 24 July and in a Brazil/ Sub-Saharan Africa Business Forum and noted that the main products exported by Brazil to Angola were sugar, beef, poultry and pork, cornmeal, footwear and furniture.

“Our goal with this action in the Angolan market is to exceed the results of the previous edition of the Luanda International Fair, during which 30 Brazilian businessmen visited Angola and signed deals and partnerships valued at US$112 million,” Apex-Brazil said in the statement. (macauhub/AO/BR)
